There are a few short words to describe what this community is for.

Pictou County!

In a longer string, I would say that this community is for people who live in Pictou County. It's for people who have moved away and want to keep in touch. And basically anyone who wants to know about the county.

Check out the Pictou County Tribute Page made by vandertramps!
